Patio Lid

What (if any) kind of insulation should be used? The patio lid is made of drywall which has a history of peeling texturing and paint at the taped joints and where the nailed to the rafters. I believe moisture is my problem even though there are no visable signs on the drywall itself.

Define Patio Lid????

Hello: KMJ

Kindly expalin what you mean by "Patio Lid?"

Are you referring to the ceiling?

Lid as is cover?

Your question could have remained unanswered because those replying in this topic may not understand what you mean by "Patio Lid."

Patio ceiling

Since you've already experienced an adhesion problem with water based products, use a quality oil based primer first. That ought to cure the peeling problem. Then, you could finish with either oil or latex paint.

If you are planning on tearing out the ceiling and insulating to reduce the amount of the sun's heat coming through the roof in summer, then your current paint problems are no longer an issue.

The ceiling can be ripped out, and bats of insulation can be stapled in. Then new ceiling material can be installed. Perhaps a wood ceiling would present fewer problems outdoors.
